Guadalajara Airport

The capital of Jalisco (a state in Mexico) is only second to Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl in terms of population density. 1.6 million people live in Guadalajara, with 4.5 million residing in the greater metropolitan area. Its economy is grounded in the information technology industry, attributing to its high quality of life for the greater portion of the populace.

The Pearl of West is where mariachi music got its start and where a number of famous festivals are held each year, among these being the International Film Festival of Guadalajara. Dubbed the American Capital of Culture for its melting pot of traditional Spanish and modern Mexican elements, the city is loaded with fun attractions.

Flights to Guadalajara

Guadalajara International is the principal operating airport for the municipality, and it is the third busiest in Mexico after Cancun and Mexico City International. In 2013 alone, the airport flew 8.1 million domestic and foreign passengers, in light of new terminal and taxiway additions that were implemented a few years prior.

Guadalajara International is a major flight hub for Aeromexico, Volaris, Interjet, and VivaAerobus. The vast majority of U.S. air traffic comes from Los Angeles, San Jose, Dallas, Houston, and Phoenix, but round-trip flights are offered to Chicago and Atlanta, as well. Direct flights to Guadalajara may be also booked with Delta, United, American Airlines, US Airways, and Alaska Airlines. The only international carrier outside that flies nonstop to the airport is Copa.

What to Do in Guadalajara

You cannot expect to visit Jalisco’s capital and not tour its array of museums and temples. The Instituto Cultural Cabanas was originally an orphanage in the early 1800s, but has since been transformed into a museum that houses a series of galleries and world-renowned exhibits. It’s also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The old world theater of Teatro Degollado hosts multiple concerts each year, but the building’s stunning architecture alone is worth a sight! Visit the ancient ruins at Guachimontones Pyramids and spend a day at the Zoologico Guadalajara (a large zoo that contains over 2,000 animals).

Advice for Tourists Visiting Guadalajara

Of Guadalajara’s many districts, Minerva, Chapultepec, Zona Rosa, and Centro Historico are the city’s prime tourist zones. Travel downtown on foot to avoid congested traffic, and pay for a bus or taxi fare if you plan to venture outside of the city center. Spanish is the primary language in Mexico, but many residents in Guadalajara speak English as a second tongue. The Mexican peso is the country’s official currency.
